KELOWNA – A fight involving a group of people in West Kelowna yesterday afternoon left a teenager injured.

RCMP say at around 1:40 p.m. yesterday, July 11, officers responded to multiple reports of a fight between numerous people in the parking lot of an unidentified business in the 2400 block of Dobbin Road.

The fight escalated and a West Kelowna teenager was assaulted with a weapon, suffering non life-threatening injuries to his upper arm, according to an RCMP media release.

Police are not saying what kind of weapon was used in the assault.

Despite a search of the area for a suspect, including the use of an RCMP helicopter, the suspect got away on a bicycle stolen from the back of a parked pickup truck in the 3800 block of Brown Road, police say.
